they look absolutely superb material- great fun! have you got any refined ones yet with behaving foliage that are forming neat tight pads or do they stay on the wild side?. As they are very much native material where do you want the finished style to go - compact and 'current japanese' or something different maybe?

I love mature junipers and this is a new one for me, thanks for the pics

regards Marcus

At the time I collect they are all mature tight folliage but the first potted or boxed planting usually requires more than 30-40 % reduction which causes all the folliage to come out immature and needle like. It generally takes 3-4 years to return to total mature scale folliage, which is what I strive for.
